I'm never bored. If I'm not knitting or spinning, I'm gardening or reading. Always up to something!

Disturb us, Lord

Disturb us, Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves, when our dreams have come true...
Because we dreamed too little.
When we arrived safely...
Because we sailed too close to the shore.
Disturb us, Lord, when with the abundance of things we possess...
We have lost our thirst for the waters of life.
Having fallen in love with life...
We have ceased to dream of eternity.
And in our efforts to build a new earth...
We have allowed our vision of the new Heaven to dim.
Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wilder seas where storms will show Your mastery.
Where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars.
We ask You to push back the horizons of our hopes and to push us into the future
In strength, courage, hope and love.
This we ask in the name of our Captain, Who is Jesus Christ
